Re: Geode: some more headaches for TorButton? :-P

It's really scary when a random website can request your physical location imo.. I really hope you can disable that shit in the new version of Firefox when they include it..

Looks like the upcoming versions of firefox will ship the support for W3C
geolocation specification: what's better for a tor attacker to ask
directly to the browser where its user lives? ;-)
I'm quite confident there'll be a way to (easily?) disable this feature
but it's scaring stuff nevertheless.
